"Now, I put a dollar in there so you can buy some milk. You can ask one of the big kids where to do that."
Disclaimer—"bonanza" might be a bit of a stretch. And thank the stars for that.
That said, when my precious little dude turned one on Sunday, my house was full of people who love him and it doesn't get much better than that.
Bug, Husband, FIL, and my own dad all have the same first name, which always makes parties interesting. And my SIL and I are both "Jen," too.
Not much creativity in our families, naming wise. But I love it. :)
So my little Bug smashed him up a chocolate cupcake with vanilla cream cheese frosting, made from the awesome linked recipes. We sang a horribly off-key rendition of "Happy Birthday" and let him tear into gifts and it was all very low-key and nice. My favorite kind of party, actually.
